Learn and see history on a bicycle

We had friends over from Holland and decided to do this tour. Booking, directions and parking was 100%. Our guide Lerato explained the history in a well balanced way. With humour and facts he entertained us well. We never felt uneasy during the tour, in fact tourists are appreciated. An excellent tour. The only suggestion is that thy can upgrade the maintenance of the bicycles.

Grace a "poulet" notre guide nous avons pu nous aventurer dans Soweto en toute confiance. Il passe la main a un connaisseur pour certaines explications sur l'histoire mais sait nous faire sentir la force qui se dégage dans ce lieu chargé de douleur et d'espérance... Les vélos ne sont qu'un moyen pour nous déplacer mais ont permis que nous allions a l'intérieur de quartiers très pauvre inaccessible en voiture. Nous y avons découvert des gens pauvres et vivant dans des conditions très difficiles mais ayant leur dignité intacte. Poulet est connu et respecté tout le long du circuit. Merci pour ce partage et continue . Dommage pour les français tout en anglais mais on s'est bien compris. On reviendra
